Why Do Dryers Fail?
Dryers have a very simple function, rotate, heat, and blow air. If any of these are failing you will find yourself listening to a loud dryer or find wet clothes at the end of a cycle. Like any mechanical system there will be wear and tear from use, to be expected, but did you know that most dryer problems can be avoided by doing a few DIY tips? As long as these tips are followed you can easily double even triple the life of your dryer, and reduce energy cost $$$, but most importantly you protect your home and family from an easily preventable house fire.
What can YOU do?
clean lint filter AFTER EVERY load
make sure flex vent behind dryer is properly connected
at least once a month when dryer is on, go outside to where vent ends, check for airflow & heat
check vent pipe for debris
try to avoid dryer sheets, liquid is better, but no softener is best
When do you need to hire a professional?
dryer is not heating
loads are taking longer then 45 minutes to dry clothes
burnt smell coming from dryer or clothes after cycle is done
the earliest sign of scratching or squealing from dryer during use
the dryer is hot to the touch after a cycle
